Schmidt, Johann Eusebius

Schmidt, Johann Eusebius a Lutheran minister, was born in 1669 at Hohenfeld, in Thuringia. A friend and pupil of A.H. Franke, he lived from 1697 as pastor in Siebleben, near Gotha, until his death, in 1745. Schmidt was a fine hymn writer, and some of his hymns belong to the best of German hymnology, as Es ist vollbracht, so ruft am Kreuze (transl. into Engl. by Mills in his Horoe Germanicoe, No. 161, "'Tis finished! thus in tortures dying"): — Fahre fort, fahre fort (Engl. transl. in Monthly Rel. Mag. 1866, 35, 363, "Onward go, onward go"). See Koch, Geschichte des deutschen Kirchenliedes, 4, 402 sq.; 8, 141; Knapp, Evangel. Liederschatz, p. 1343. (B.P.)
